Today Paris is the City of Love, the home of fashion and the centerof art and culture in France, but it wasn't always that way.

France, and Paris in particular, has a long, tragic history of murder and execution, of rampant disease among the lower classes and of bitter wars fought against a corrupt monarchy. Our Dark Heart of Paris Tour takes visitors on a journey through this other side of the city - the rarely seen underbelly of the City of Love.

The tour takes place under a cloak of darkness, winding down alleyways and cutting through the hushed silence of the night. Following your English-speaking guide, you will go to the sites of some of Paris' darkest hours - the Place de la Vert Gallant where the last of the Knights Templar was burned at the stake; St. Germain de Auxerrois where some estimates say 30,000 were killed in the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre in 1572; and the Palais du Justice, where those found guilty by the court were routinely tortured and executed before live audiences.

As you walk, your guide will point out places of interest, filling you in on the full details of the gruesome history of Paris. No stone will go unturned as you delve into the dark heart of the city. Starting out with ritual worship in early Paris, you will travel through generations wracked by the plague, the French Revolution, the Paris Commune and Nazi rule. You will learn about the characters that have molded the city, from Napoleon to Mari Antoinette, Henry IV and the serial killers that once stalked these very streets.

The Dark Heart of Paris tour offers a rare opportunity to glimpse a side to Paris that you won't see advertised on postcards. A chance to learn a little more about the City of Love and those who have loved, hated, died and murdered there.

Sites visited include Place de la Vert Gallant, The Louvre (outside view), St. Germain de Auxerrois, La Fontaine de la Croix du Trahoir, Rue de la Ferronnerie, Square of the Innocents, The Rat Trap Shop (As seen in Ratatouille), Tour St. Jacques, La Fontaine du Palmier, River Seine, The Conciergerie, Ile de la Cite, Palais du Justice, Hotel Dieu and Hotel de ville

The tour ends in front of the Hotel de Ville.

    Alberto was a very good guide. He knew his material, injected some humor, and was able to answer all the obscure questions we had. A strong voice and easy to understand English.
